Mooney: The Cubs set their sights on Yu Darvish – The Athletic

With the amount of talent they have assembled, it’s really tough to ignore The Athletic.

Cubs president Theo Epstein, general manager Jed Hoyer, run prevention coordinator Tommy Hottovy and pro scouting director Kyle Evans met with Darvish and his Wasserman representatives last month at a Four Seasons resort in the Dallas area.

Run prevention coordinator?

Well, we let our quality assurance coach go so, in fine 21st century fashion, I'd guess we replaced him with two administrators.

I'll WAG it means he's team leader of the group that's responsible for "Bryce Harper hits 12.5 points lower on 94 MPH fastballs in the lower LH 1/9th of the plate than he does on 95 MPH fastballs in the lower LH 1/9th of the plate."

OK, everyone, sing it together!

That's awesome.

It's a shame that Javier Baez seems like he's finally found a regular spot at 2B -- otherwise, he could have finally gotten his Gold Glove at the position of Run Prevention Facilitator.

They need to tell him to stop working with Heyward on his swing.

Hottovy was drafted by Theo, and they both left the Sox within a few weeks in '11.

Hottovy’s sworn enemy is the Scoreboard Total Rebigulator.
